In July I spent a day in my hometown, Preston.
I’d been invited to do so by Fuel, as part of their New Theatre In Your Neighbourhood project.
I’m not going to write much about the day here (follow the link below for the full account). Just to say that it felt great to revisit the town where I grew up, and to attempt to look at it with fresh eyes. It was inspiring to be able to dedicate a few hours to imagining what I might make there, without worrying about scale or practicality!
Here’s my account of the day, on Fuel’s NTIYN blog: http://newtheatreiyn.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/artist-mission-ben-pacey-in-preston/
